Amid pandemic stress, spa treatments shouldn’t be seen as a “luxury”

The global COVID-19 pandemic has undoubtedly had a major effect on our lives and brought about numerous challenges which for many have been stressful and overwhelming.  As Kosha Johnson, owner and operator of Vokos Mobile Spa Experience notes, the need for “self love”, pampering and relaxation has never been more crucial. 

According to Johnson, for far too long spa treatments have been viewed by many as somewhat of an unnecessary luxury. However, with multiple treatments that can help reduce stress and contribute to one’s overall well-being, the well-known massage therapist and aesthetician is out to prove that pampering, restoration and relaxation is just as much an important lifestyle choice as diet and exercise.

“I want people to look at it in a holistic way and not separate it from their overall health,” says Johnson. “People often see it as merely a luxury, something that you don’t really need and I want to change that narrative.”

Johnson, who founded the health-conscious mobile spa company more than a decade ago, describes the company’s offering as “healthcare meets luxury.” The company is well-known as the preferred in-room spa service for many of the top local resorts on New Providence.

With experienced, licensed and fully vaccinated therapists ready and able to come to you, Johnson notes that clients never have to leave the comforts of their home.

“It’s a safer option, considering we’re still battling this COVID pandemic. Our therapists are all vaccinated and rather than having to get up and go somewhere, we offer the convenience of being able to you at a time of your choosing” says Johnson.

The company which operates a cashless system also offers its services onboard yachts, at parties, Airbnbs and to corporate establishments. 

Johnson notes that like many small and medium sized businesses, the pandemic dealt a severe blow to her operations, particularly in light of the fact that spas were not permitted to operate.

“We were shut down for almost the full two years due to restrictions on spas,” says Johnson. “That had a major impact on the business.”

Prior to the pandemic Johnson notes that she was working on an App and was progressing towards expansion into Turks and Caicos Island, with talks well underway at the time. Those plans came to a screeching halt however due to the pandemic. Now, Johnson is looking to not only see the business rebound but hopes that the company’s offering can help others cope with the “pandemic stress.”

As Johnson notes,  the VoKo’s experience is a luxury experience catering to the body, mind and soul.
